I fondamenti del laser

The word “laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are finding ever increasing military applications — principally for target acquisition, fire control, and training. These lasers are termed rangefinders, target designators, and direct-fire simulators. Lasers are also being used in communications, laser radars (LIDAR), landing systems, laser pointers, guidance systems, scanners, metal working, photography, holography, and medicine.
